Dear Parents

 Parent Consultations

Our parent Consultations will be taking place w/c November 6th.  Sign up sheets will be available from your child’s Keyworker from Monday 16th October.

Data Collection Sheets

Please remember to hand in your Data Collection sheets with any amendments and a signature.  These can be handed in to the office.


We will be looking at pumpkins next week and would appreciate pumpkin donations of any size.

Visiting Artist

There will be a visiting artist who will be doing sketches/drawings of the children around the Nursery on Tuesdays.  These drawings will not be published and are solely for studies the artist is doing for her MA course.  If you do not want your child to be included in this please inform the office.


The Friends of Brunswick

Welcome to you all on behalf of the Friends of Brunswick. We have a few events coming up for which we would greatly appreciate your help and support.

On Wednesday 18th October at 11.45 and 3.45 we will be holding our first cake sale of the year. We should be very grateful to receive your donations of homemade or bought cakes or savouries and, of course, your support in buying the delicious goodies from the sale. Please leave goodies in the garden room at drop off or bring them to the sale.

On Saturday 11th November from 3-5pm we will be holding our Pumpkin Party at Milton Country Park. This is a wonderful, fun family event which will include pumpkin carving, a torch lit walk, songs, stories and party food.

Tickets go on sale from the office this Monday 16th October. Tickets are £10 per family (limited to 6 people). We would love as many Brunswick families to participate as possible.


Please bring child-friendly party food to share; please make sure it is labelled clearly with an ingredients list (no nuts please).

Torches and warm, waterproof clothes are also recommended. The event will go ahead whatever the weather!

As you are aware, we are raising funds for the nursery to fund equipment and activities for our children. Your support and generosity with these events is greatly appreciated.

Please remember the nursery is closed for a Training Day on Friday 20 October.
